From silly second grade sleepovers to girls’ nights you’ll never forget, the sweet gals you’ve selected to stand by your side on your wedding day have been there for you through it all, even through months and months of wedding planning.
To celebrate these incredible constants in your life, we’ve rounded up the 10 bridesmaid moments sure to warm even the hardest of hearts. In fact, they’re so lovely, you might end up stealing a few ideas for your own special day (we hope you do)!
1. Up, Up & Away!
She’s on the move! If there’s one thing that can add a little pizazz to your bridesmaid photos, it’s props. And these oversized balloons are sure to make one sweet statement!

You’ve spent so much time selecting show-stopping accessories for your ‘maids —why not show them off? We love how this photo offers a unique change in perspective, and also gives the world a chance to see your girls’ stylin’ kicks!
3. Now & Then
Your bridesmaids have grown with you through so many stages of your life. Pay tribute to those memories by posing for a photo that shows how each gal first came to know you! For a DIY touch, have each of your girls display their message on mini chalkboards — adorable, affordable and oh-so-meaningful!
4. You Make Me Feel Like a Kid Again!
Impromptu pre-wedding pillow fight?! Yes, please! We firmly believe that the wacky activities you used to do as a kid are 10 times more fun when you do them as an adult. Plus, what better way to calm those wedding nerves than a giggle-filled pillow war with your besties?!
